La Diamond Jewel Eyeliner Deep Purple Review ( &EOTD)

Juli 22, 2012

Twinkle, twinkle little star…. hello my dear readers! ๏ผŠ๏ผŠ๏ผŠ

I hope you are ready for some jewelry-twinkle-glitter-glamour-action, because that’s what we’ll be doing today! ๐Ÿ˜€ When I went shopping with my roomie, we found these awesome jewel glitter eyeliners with a huge variation of colors that I HAD to buy and try it out. What I want to share with you all today is a little review on La Diamond Jewel Eyeliner in the shade Deep Purple.
Doesn’t the glitter in the packaging looks just AWESOME?! I mean… gosh, it twinkles and glitters, the whole thing looks just sooooo damn‘ nice in the packaging, rawr. To be honest, I am a bad bad sucker for glitter. I mean, glitter looks very nice and promising in the packaging, I always end to buy so many glitter items! The thing is: you don’t really use it. Or need it. Or both. I personally think glitter is very tricky to wear, it can look cheap or carnival-ish very easily. But this one, I couldn’t talk myself out of it. I originally wanted to buy a deep pink shade, but… I feared it could look strange with my eye color. Plus, I intend to wear this for my next Yosakoi performances since our costumes are black, white, red and exactly this shade of deep purple! :3 At least I had a slight reason for buying this, lol. (Try to convince myself.) ๐Ÿ˜€
I honestly could look at the product in the packaging the whole day. It looks awesome. I’m pretty proud that I was able to catch the shade so well with my camera -making slight progress- :3 But enough of that, now going away from the surface digging a bit deeper beneath.
I couldn’t find anything online about La Diamond Jewel Eyeliners which was the mean reason to review this product and making opinions available on the net. This eyeliner has a very thin tip and gives off a little less product than expected. However, you can layer this up once it’s dryed so I really didn’t think that that is a negative point (glitter’s always a bit tricky to handle, usually most items only give off poor quantity of the glitter.) Since the tip is very thin but not too flexible it’s really easy to apply ๐Ÿ™‚
Applied with black eyeliner underneath (picture above) and just the glitter itself, only one swipe each. I tried to rub it away but to my surprise nothing happened and it stayed put like that the whole day!
As you can see, this looks a bit poor without eyeliner underneath. I never understand why they never make colored glitter eyeliner so that you have a vibrant and opaque glitter eyeliner, but okay, I guess I have to do that myself, the base is always transparent. However, I personally think it does look really nice with the black eyeliner underneath, the purple really stands out. And how much I love the shade! It does look exactly like the packaging. Telling from how far I can go with one swipe I believe this product goes a loooong way (especially because you don’t need glitter that often :> ) The price for this was 8-9$ and I would def. buy other shades if I had enough events to use this eyeliner! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a rather simple design I did with the eyeliner for my Yosakoi performance today; our outfit is white/black/red/purple and the make-up has to match the costume, it’s kind of a common rule for that dance. I had absolutely no idea on how to match this with an eyeshadow so I left shadows out and only went with bold eyeliner, what do you guys think? :3 (P.S. I wanted to use some really bold eyelashes instead of these spidey-ones but it was dark when I got up and grabbed the wrong one… ;A;)

As you can see here I got a little messy and some glitter particles went around on my lid and it was impossible to remove them without messing up the whole make-up..make sure it’s really dry before you blink!

This was taken after the performance because I didn’t have time before; so I already danced an hour with that make-up, I’m always surprised about how good my make-up stays while doing sports :< And I was especially surprised about how well the glitter sticks to the skin and doesn’t run or move around my face, I definitely recommend that product! So today I felt reeeeaaally sick, my throat and head hurts and I feel super dizzy so I basically rushed home after the performance to get some sleep. Since I didn’t succeed in sleeping I’m typing this instead. The other pictures I took are bit overlighted because I rushed and didn’t pay attention to the light, lazy photographer olรฉ. I loved my hair today & was surprised it survived the performance ^-^

BYTHEWAY; could someone PLEASE notice the flesh tunnel in my right ear? It’s my newest baby and it took a long time and was painful so please at least notice it! ๐Ÿ˜€

I love how my hair turns out in my photographs; you probably think I am setting the contrast in PS to superhigh but that’s not really the case; the color looks really like that in real life (a bit darker maybe..). Not the best pictures I made but oh well. I am off and out for today; if you search for me you can find me watching Project Runway (so inspirational!) or playing Pokรฉmon White 2 (so nice so far!) or teasing my roomie to get me some soup or tea. This is my very last university week in Japan, we’ll have a ceremony on Saturday where we’ll also get our results and another Yosakoi performance on Sunday.. not really time to lay around lazy. Hope I can catch up with all of you soon!

Have a nice start in the week tomorrow โ™ฅ
Until next time,
